About 12 Bloomsbury Square
Built in the reign of Charles II, by the Earl of Southampton in 1661, Bloomsbury Square is on one of London's oldest garden squares. Many of the rooms at 12 Bloomsbury Square are named after those in the famous 'Bloomsbury Set', including Virginia Woolf, John Maynard Keynes, E. M. Forster and Lytton Strachey. Latterly, Nikolaus Pevsner housed his library at 12 Bloomsbury Square in a panelled room which is now available to hire.
12 Bloomsbury Square offers a variety of rooms suited to a range of different events including meetings, training and workshops, conferences and seminars, recruitment and interviewing as well as launches and receptions.
